RE: looping brings infinity?
Your assumption seems to be that nature is only constructive and
positive (in whatever shades of meaning we derive from our particular
culture). "Viruses" are nature themselves. A giant volcanic explosion
is nature. A giant meteor or comet hitting the Earth and killing off
all the dinosaurs is nature. Are you aware that more than 90% of all
species that have ever lived are now extinct? And if that is the
pattern (loop?) of nature on Earth, guess what's our (humans') most
All loops vanish away.
We *are* biochemical loops. It's natural. It's delightful!

I'm not 100% convinced that we are nature.
Mankind works against nature. You only have to look at how we fight
amongst ourselves and slowly suffocate the planet and kill off all the
other species of living matter and natural resources. We are almost like
viruses - consume, spread, consume, spread....
Certainly there are core elements of the human body that are made up of
elements of nature, but there is something coherantly very wrong with
the human psyche.
Maybe the 'buzz' comes from this psyche actually taping back into
nature.... its a different natural state to be in, thus is a trip....
Damn... I'm rambing. :)
